Are permanent dentures the same as implants?

One of the most recognizable aspects of traditional dentures is that they are removable. This is due mainly to the fact that up until recently, the technology for creating dentures lacked the accuracy for a long-term and comfortable fit. Additionally, if you can remove your denture, you can more easily clean and maintain them and adjust them for changes in your mouth.

Dental Technology and Dental Implant Dentures

Two factors now allow your dentist in Brentwood, TN, to offer a more permanent denture option. The first is fit.

Instead of taking a physical impression of your mouth structure, your dentist can now use high-resolution cameras and scanners to take hyper-accurate measurements of your mouth. This precision ensures that your implant denture will fit perfectly, increasing comfort and stability.

The other factor that couples with an implant denture’s fit are how we attach it to your mouth. Instead of using adhesives or clips and tooth anchors, implant dentures connect to four or more dental implants that are inserted directly into your jawbone.

As a result, your implant denture will be so secure in your mouth that you can treat the entire restoration the same way you’d treat your natural teeth.
